Why study Banking and Finance at Loughborough University?
This specialist programme provides both basic training in preparation for higher degrees by research (MPhil or PhD), and vocational training for careers in the financial services sectors of industry and government, particularly banking and central banking.
It provides training in banking, finance and research methods whilst allowing continued specialisation in either microeconomics or macroeconomics. This enables you to develop sophistication in areas of economics, banking and finance that suit you best. A very wide choice of options is available.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Upper second class honours (2:1) degree with some economics. Modules must include macroeconomics and microeconomics. Where the UK honours degree system is not used, applicants must have studied at least 14 relevant modules (including maths, statistics, economics, banking, finance BUT NOT accounting, business or management).
